Separate Line Weights for Hatch Lines in Polygons

There is an overlooked feature in Styles for Polygons. I call it that because it is not an error -- just an oversight. The lineweights for hatch lines should be controlled separately from the outer border of the polygon. It is customary and logical to show hatchlines at a reduced weight from that of the polygon itself. That is how we represent parts in mechanical engineering. As it stands now they are both controlled by the same style input. Please fix so that hatchline styles can be independently controlled from that of borders styles.

If you right click on a polygon, then select Properties (v.5) or Settings (v.6) a panel opens, allowing you to set the line style and the filling style, that are independent on each other. Select each tab of the Settings panel and try to apply different styles to the outline and filling of the polygon.

Okay I figured that out too after I wrote this post. But there should be a quick input that targets all borders at once rather than now where each entitiy needs to be individually selected and edited. Or better a line weight input that only targets hatch lines without affecting border entities.
